Ingredients

GINGER SYRUP

  • 1 Cup cold, filtered water
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1-Inch piece of fresh ginger (grated)

LEMONADE

  • 1 Cup freshly squeezed lemon juice(6–8 lemons)
  • 4 Cups cold, filtered water

What to Do

GINGER SYRUP

  1. Combine sugar, ginger, and 1 cup of water in a medium saucepan.
  2. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and then bring to a boil over medium/high heat.
  3. Lower the heat to heat and simmer until all sugar has dissolved (15–20 seconds).
  4. Strain the syrup into a large bowl. Set aside to cool.

LEMONADE

  1. Juice your lemons.
  2. Place a strainer over a large bowl. Pour the lemon juice through to remove pulp and seeds. Using a spatula, press down on the pulp to remove any lemon juice that’s still caught in the pulp.
  3. Combine lemon juice, 4 cups of water, and ginger syrup. Stir well.
  4. Pour into a serving pitcher, and add plenty of ice, and serve.

ENJOY!
